Why PayPal money adder is a scam
I stumbled upon this software when I did a Google search on PayPal money. The uploaders of these videos claimed that you can add unlimited amount of money into your PayPal account. Out of curiosity, I tried to click on their links and File Ice directs me to their own website. I need to fill a survey before I can download the so-called "crack" for PayPal. Unfortunately, after I completed the survey, the download did not unlock. Therefore, I decided to try other versions of PayPal money adder downloads but none of them works.
How Paypal scammers trick you:
1. The scammers will always upload a file to a file sharing website that need you to fill a survey before you download the file or you will be given a locked zip file which required you to fill a survey in other websites to retrieve the password. You may have successfully downloaded the file but you may find out that the software you are trying to execute is not working. It either said that your downloaded software has expired and you need to download an updated version of the software or you get an error message which said that you need certain softwares such as Microsoft Windows Net Framework to run.
2. Just if you can download and successfully executed the application, don't be too happy because the application will need you to enter your PayPal account password to add money or it requires an installation into your computer. Never a genuine crack software like this requires your account password or installation into your computer!
The person who uploaded the video showed proof on how their accounts can turn from US$ 0 to US$ 1000 in a split second. The trick for this is that you can manipulate the numbers easily from the video using a Photoshop application. But one thing I cannot comprehend is how some of them can get so many positive comments and likes on their YouTube videos. When I clicked on the survey link, I would be required to sign up some offers where some of them are pure scam which requires you to download applications filled with bugs where installation cannot even be completed properly.
You can rest assured that spam emails will be flooding your mailbox after you entered your details into the sign-up form. Some offers requires you to sign up another offer to complete the registration which is very troublesome and the download does not unlock eventually. In the end, only the uploader of the dummy crack profited from your filled surveys.
Why money adder is not possible?
Imagine that if you have money adder, and you want to help more people by releasing it on the internet; what would you do? You will give it for free right? Why would they put it into the survey sites to make money? Money earned from surveys would make up only very small fraction of their total earnings since they have the greatest money adder! Ethical hacker believed that a user should be satisfied with the software before they buy it so they distributed their cracks for free with no strings attached.
These scammers claimed that they need surveys to prevent abuses and show that you are a human, not a bot. These are lame excuses because a simple image CAPTCHA would be enough to show if the downloader is a human or a bot! How can a survey help to verify that if the downloader is having a criminal mind? I think a resumÃ© or an interview will be better!
If money adder is real, each PayPal dollar would worth much less now, just like how Bitcoin fared in August 2011 where its value dropped to less than a penny overnight after a hacker took away millions of Bitcoins from MtGox website. Such money adders did not gain notability like "Windows 7 Loader"crack in the news because it is not working. Not single news mentioned that hackers can steal money by manipulating transmissions from PayPal servers unless the hackers gain access to users' accounts!

Money adder from Anonymous?
Some scammers even uses Anonymous hacktivist group's reputation to promote their dummy money adder. I can tell you, Anonymous never release such money adder. They only performed a DDos attack during "Operation Avenge Assange" and paralysed PayPal servers after PayPal denies funds to Wikileaks.
Wait, what about survey bypasser/removal tool?
Most of the people who can't get the files unlocked from the survey sites will most probably search for survey bypasser/removal tool. If you are doing this, then they have successfully scammed you second time! Similar to PayPal money adder, they locked these survey removal softwares and requires you to fill a series of offers from survey sites.
Some of the uploaders even claimed that just fill another survey, then you are free from surveys forever! How ridiculous, to get rid of surveys, we need to fill another survey? If such people believed they can hack such survey sites easily, they wouldn't have upload their survey removal tools there! Why they just cannot distribute their softwares for free?
In the end, you still need to fill those annoying surveys.
All in all, PayPal money adder is a false claim by the scammers. Do not waste time finding a "legit" money adder because it does not exist! Remember, you cannot get a bunch of money flowing into your account without putting in any hard work!
